operator functions (clifford.operator
)¶
This module exists to enable functional programming via functools.reduce()
.
It can be thought of as equivalent to the builtin operator
module, but for the operators from geometric algebra.
>>> import functools
>>> import clifford.operator
>>> from clifford.g3 import *
>>> Ms = [e1, e1 + e2, e2 + e3] # list of multivectors
>>> assert functools.reduce(clifford.operator.op, Ms) == Ms[0] ^ Ms[1] ^ Ms[2]

clifford.operator.
gp
(M, N)[source]¶ Geometric product function \(MN\), equivalent to
M * N
.M and N must be from the same layout

clifford.operator.
op
(M, N)[source]¶ Outer product function \(M \wedge N\), equivalent to
M ^ N
.M and N must be from the same layout

clifford.operator.
ip
(M, N)[source]¶ Hestenes inner product function \(M \bullet N\), equivalent to
M  N
.M and N must be from the same layout
Changed in version 1.3.0: These functions used to be in clifford
, but have been moved to this
submodule.
